ABSTRACT: Obstruction of the anterior urethra by a congenital valve is an uncommon condition. This report describes a male infant who presented with poor urinary stream, recurrent UTI and a visible, fluctuant swelling in the ventral aspect of distal penis. VCUG and crytourethroscopy revealed an anterior urethral diverticulum with a valve like distal margin (anterior urethral valve). Transurethral fulguration of the valve has been done and the child is presently doing well.
